Drone 1 - Kite 0

Postby windsuks » Tue Sep 16, 2014 7:08 pm

Ooops, ever wondered what the outcome would be if a drone and a kite should errm meet?
Wonder no more!



Please not it was a mate's kite and all was sorted quickly and amicably. :thumb:

I suspect it has happened a number of times and over water (i.e. bye bye working drone). If you fly to shoot a moving target like a kite particularly with other kites in the area, I would expect to get splashed one of these days unless you are very careful.

Taste in music +1000

Must have been a pretty bad whack that the drone didn't recover! I've had mine flip upside down and it has spun all the way back around and kept flying normally. Let's not talk about how it happened ;)

COOL Video !!

Music was also Good ; but then again , i'm just as good with Country , as
i am with Classical , Kinda depends on the Mood. If i'm gonna see a crash ; then
i want some decent Head-Banger Rock & Roll !! :lol:

If everybody Liked the same thing ; technologically , we'd probably still be back in the
12'th Century ? It's not a cut or bash on anyone, that don't like what i like ; but if your not
good with garlic & anchovies , (then Ya better not take any of my pizza) ! :D
